What are bird flight cages? Any bird owner knows the joy of having a bird, but just like other pets, they need to exercise. Flight cages are large bird cages that allow your favorite pet to fly around, and exercise their wings, without letting them roam around the house. This protects your bird, or birds and keeps them from getting to cooped up. Being able to regularly fly around has many different advantages as well as benefits for your birds.
Bird flight cages allow regular flight for your birds. This is important to their muscles and heart, as well as their skeleton. Flight cages keep your bird healthy, strong and happy. A bird that is kept in a small cage gets atrophied, making their body brittle and susceptible to injury, even if you handle them delicately. Flight is also a strong component when it comes to breeding, so if you want more, then buying a flight cage is a must.
Bird flight cages don't have to break the bank. Many different flight cages cost under $1,000, many that are less than 500. A lot depends on the bird, the space you have, and your budget.
